More and more sightings of Terraria appearing on Nintendo hardware have appeared in the past month, and it seems that there’s no secret this great game is heading to the Wii U and 3DS soon. At first, we heard about the Australian ratings that the game received, while also seeing a few retail listings for it as well.
It seems that ESRB has listed Terraria as being set to release but only on the Wii U, at least according to the current listing that the game has on that particular site. Speculations also seem to suggest that the game is, at some point, heading towards the Vita platform as well, because it’s already on PSN and a few other portable devices as well.
What makes Terraria great and so sought after by many platforms is the fact that it’s a good platform game that includes a good sandbox theme as well. Many considered it Minecraft in 2D, and it managed to get quite a lot of shining reviews thanks to the stellar gameplay that it has managed to offer.
Even if it’s not a new game, Terraria still manages to stay in the top charts all over the world thanks to its one of a kind gameplay and numerous other interesting benefits that it offers. It’s a game that doesn’t ask a lot from people, but which manages to provide an extraordinary, interesting experience for you to enjoy.
It’s a very diverse title that definitely has a lot of appeal and which suits the controller gameplay perfectly. There’s no wonder that Nintendo would like to have them on the main console, and considering the graphics, we have to say that this will be a good fit for the 3DS as well, although some things will have to be narrowed down one way or another.
How much will it actually influence the gaming world is hard to say, but considering the great gameplay that Terraria offers, all of us that want a good platform and sandbox game with 2D visuals should twist their fingers, hoping that all these leaks will become a reality.
And even if leaks are coming from everywhere, the reality is that 505 games, the publisher for the title still doesn’t really make any announcement. Maybe they are expecting for a better moment, they plan new features or who knows what.
Either way, Terraria definitely fits the Wii U perfectly and this is a game that you do want to play, guaranteed. You should give it a try on the other platforms to see if you like it, but either way it’s a nice, solid experience for you to check out! There’s no idea in regards to the price either, but hopefully the game won’t be expensive to begin with, one can only hope that!

Nintendo has just posted its latest financial report and it is certainly encouraging. From March 2014 to December 2014, the company has reported a net income of more than five hundred million dollars.

The number may be surprising for some market watchers in the west because the new Nintendo 3DS handheld consoles have not been launched in Europe and North America, yet. The consoles have been around in Japan for about three months now and it has been in the Australian and New Zealand markets for a little over two months. The new Nintendo 3DS is set to be launched in Europe and North America in February.

In three months of its launch, Nintendo 3DS has clocked sales of 1.75 million units in Japan. In Australia and New Zealand, the sales stand at 80,000. The sum indicates a strong turnaround for the company that had been struggling for several months. To put things into perspective, the earlier Nintendo 3DS was launched in February 2011 and it had only sold 1.03 million units in Japan. Some experts are of the opinion that the competition to the old Nintendo 3DS was stronger than the competition for the new Nintendo 3DS. That aside, the numbers are certainly encouraging for Nintendo fans and stakeholders alike.

If erstwhile trends are to be taken into consideration then Nintendo handheld devices have traditionally fared much better in North America and Europe than what they achieved in Japan. If they are doing well there, then it is just the tip of the iceberg of profits that Nintendo is eyeing for this fiscal.

If history is any indication then bestselling Nintendo consoles has always cut into the prospects of a new console getting its due share. This happened with the old Nintendo 3DS when Nintendo DSi and DSi XL cut into its sales. The new Nintendo 3DS faces no such threat as the existing 2DS devices and the old 3DS are not faring that well.

The success of the new Nintendo 3DS can be further facilitated by Wii U. The Wii U hardware has been appreciated, the games on the platform are selling well and the upcoming releases will only make Wii U even more enticing.

The new 3DS along with the rise of Wii U is certainly scripting the turnaround for Nintendo.
